Pantea Azizi Tourshizi has died from her injuries following severe injuries she received on November 24 in Walnut Creek. An 18 year-old woman from Rome, Italy, Ms. Tourshizi was a passenger in a Honda Accord between 12:30 and 1:00 a.m. when the car was struck by a pick-up truck being driven by Walnut Creek resident Justin Ross, 37. The young woman was severely injured and was taken to an area hospital where she was placed under life support. Two other individuals in the Honda were also injured in the incident.  Mr. Ross has been arrested on suspicion of a DUI and with violating his probation, as Contra Costa County authorities say he had faced a previous DUI arrest.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased during this difficult time.
